Healthy Lunchtime Recipe with Just

Even though I work from home, most days it can be pretty challenging to peel away from the computer and take a break from work. This is super unhealthy, not just to have for a mental break but also a physical one as the body should be moving and definitely eating during a busy day. I’m trying to be better about this, going so far as sceduling an alarm when it’s time to stretch, get some air and make lunch. While I love that I can make healthier choices at home, I’m also looking for ways to mix up my typical grain bowl or salad. Recently, this has included a loaded tempeh sandwich complete with lettuce, pumpkin puree, cranberry, avocado, tempeh and simple flavors from Just Sweet Mustard. This non-GMO and gluten-free blend can also be used as a marinade, glaze or dip that also has a wide-range of condiments to further enhance your lunch situation. This includes their yummy Just Mayo, Just Ranch, Just Chipotle Ranch and tons more. The only prep is cooking the tempeh and cutting up the ingredients, where I have a healthy and hearty lunch within minutes. Read on to check out this easy, quick lunch idea that’s sure to make you want to leave your desk.
